Texas Instruments just upgraded their OMAP4 line with the 4470, a 1.8GHz dual-core chipset with a PowerVR SGX544 that’s said to be 2.5x faster than its predecessor. It can handle resolutions up to 2084×1536, stereoscopic 3D in HD over HDMI and more. TI’s OMAP4430 already looked amazing when we got our eyes on it at Mobile World Congress so we’re surprised to see them 1up it so quickly.

It’s shipping out to OEMs in the second half of this year, but devices aren’t expected to use the powerhouse chipset until mid-2012. We expect Motorola to revisit TI for their high-end chipset needs as NenaMark benchmark results have already suggested.
